Drove the chevy to the Levee..
Nice little overview of New Orleans. Doesnt cover MUCH, but what it does cover certainly is interesting, More about the seaboard industry more than anything else, about what it imports and exports. There's some great shots of it's levees which hasn't been compromised in over 100 years it says in the film, much to nervous laughter nowadays.

I was wondering about the date of the filming of this. A little Google searching narrows it down to between 1934 (when Shusan Airport opened) and 1940 (when the same airport was renamed Lakefront Airport). Can anyone narrow it down further?

Thank You Mr. Prelinger
Nice film, lots of nice buildings, but as a bridge lover I really enjoyed the footage of the cantilever bridge at the start, and amazingly the bridge is still standing. It's a lovely bridge. I also enjoyed the footage of sky-scrapers.
